Although pricey, food at The Calabash is worth it. They have the best malva pudding I have ever encountered (and I've tasted quite a few). The service differs though, from excellent to below average on some occasions.

Very very friendly staff and the indoors is amazing! The food is superb and if you are feeling a bit adventurious, try the Jungle Juice but only see what it is after you have drunken the shot

The restaurant has been around forever and a day. The quality of the food is great and the portions are large. The eisbein on the menu is world class. The wine list let them down, their is very few choices availble and if you actually find a wine in the cellar that is drinkable it will set you back between R1000 to R3000. ( 100 - 300 dollar)

The waiters are very friendly and so very proud of the restaurant. The service is great.

We recently returned to The Calabash. Last time we were in Swaziland was 8 years ago and the quality of the food was still really excellent. We appreciated the professionalism and kindness of the staff too.

But what a deception when it came to the wine list. The list itself is actually quite good : tens (hundreds?) of nectars from different countries to chose from and to to whet our appetite. Just that the waiter then suggest it would be preferable I go to the wine cellar to select a bottle. Very nice cellar indeed, temperature and light controlled ... but 95% empty ... Only a few odd bottles, some totally overpriced and other of very doubtful quality ... We ended up taking an extremely average bottle, the kind of one you drink by the glass in place where the dinner costs a tenth of what you pay at Calabash.

Come on Calabash, you can easily do much better; match (again) your cellar with your kitchen!

I can't say enough about the food or staff here, everything was just right. Ask to try the "jungle juice" - it will brighten the evening up, but watch out the next day!!
